"Colleen Fitzpatrick has been to an isolated Alaskan mountain, a tiny island in the western Pacific Ocean and beneath the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean around 41°43 55 N/49°56 45 W, yet in all that time she’s never left her home office in Huntington Beach, California.

In barely six years she’s become a legend in her field, profiled as the ‘DNA Detective’ by More magazine and the inspiration for ‘Frances Moran’, a genetic genealogist in a mystery novel called Forget To Remember. She’s also contacted ‘several times a year’ by television and film companies looking to bring her story to the screen."
